Talking about the film, Karan Johar said “I can’t divulge too much now. But what I can definitely say is that the movie is mainstream and has a very strong underlying social message. It’s solid and hard-hitting. Punit brought me this amazing script. I immediately approached Akshay and he was equally thrilled with the idea.”

Akshay too confirmed the film “We’re two very passionate producers with one great aim i.e to entertain. Both Karan and I want to make our fathers proud. Cheers to our new venture.”

Shooting for the film will begin in the first half of 2014, after Punit Malhotra is done with directing Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
